It was my first time even trying them on (with this sweater, which I also bought and am obsessed with). It took me about 5 minutes of struggling in the dressing room to get on the size extra small, but finally I got them on. I waddled out to the mirrors, feeling a bit like a sausage in an extremely tight casing, where the SA assured me that these leggings stretch out so much that you need to get the tightest pair you can possibly fit into. She told me she was on her second pair because she didn't get the sizing right the first time. By that time I was already starting to feel less constricted, so I took her word for it and got the xs - and oh boy was she ever right! They fit perfectly now.
This sweater is also something I had been looking at for a while. It's quickly becoming a favourite i.e. I have been wearing it almost every day since I got it. The fabric is beautiful - a mix of wool, linen, and viscose - and hasn't even hinted at getting fuzzy or balling after my repeated wears. Which is a relief, because this sweater was hella expensive!
This whole outfit - blanket scarf, bag, and boots included - has quickly become a uniform for me on my days off. So comfy and chic and warm. I'm obsessed. I never thought I'd see the day where an outfit consisting of leggings and a long sweater was my go-to, but here we are!

Hope you're all having a wonderful holiday season! I'm all set with my shopping and wrapping and can just relax today. It's very very nice to not be at all stressed about Christmas this year!
